ALLES FUR VERONIKA (1936)       Thekla Ahrens, Carl Esmond and Hans Moser, Veit Harlan

 Art.No.:          1628 

Veronica, a saleslady in Tutzinger Department Store, loves Paul, who also works there as a salesman.  The two grow closer to one another during a weekend drive into the country, but Veronica has gotten into big trouble.  To cover up a tear in her dress, she "borrowed" a vaulable fur from the store, which she intended to return on Monday (surrrre!).  Unfortunately for her, the theft was noticed and Veronica has to come up with a winner-of-a-story to her boss, Mr. Tutzinger or face an extended vacation in a lovely place with cement walls and steel bars.

 Veronika, Verkäuferin im Warenhaus Tutzinger, liebt Paul, der dort ebenfalls als Verkäufer arbeitet. Bei einem Wochenendausflug im Auto kommen sich die Kollegen näher, aber Veronika gerät auch in große Schwierigkeiten. Denn um einen Riss in ihrem Kleid zu überdecken, hat sie sich aus dem Kaufhaus einen wertvollen Pelz geliehen, den sie am Montag wieder zurückbringen wollte. Der Diebstahl wird jedoch bemerkt, und Veronika muss sich vor ihrem Chef Tutzinger rechtfertigen

ANTON DER LETZTE (1939)            Elfriede Datzig, Hans Moser and O.W. Fischer, E.W. Emo

 Art.No.:          1634 

Anton is a faithful servant to the Count of Erlenburg, but he also has a very short temper.  And there's enough going on in the castle to lead to his exploding:  his lord is about to become the victim of a fraudulent marriage, while the young Willy von Erlenburg has inappropriately fallen for the neighbor's daughter, Leni.  When Willy joins an expedition to Teheran out of protest against his father's wishes to undermine his relationship with Leni, a now pregnant Leni turns in desperation to Anton to help out.

Anton ist dem Grafen von Erlenburg ein treuer Kammerdiener, aber er hat auch ein sehr aufbrausendes Temperament. Und auf dem Schloß gibt es genug Anlaß zur Aufregung: Sein gutgläubiger Herr droht Opfer eines Heiratsschwindels zu werden, während sich der junge Willy von Erlenburg unstandesgemäß in die Nachbarstochter Leni verliebt hat. Als Willy sich aus Protest gegenüber seinem Vater, der die Beziehung unterbinden will, einer Expedition nach Teheran anschließt, wendet sich die mittlerweile schwangere Leni in ihrer Not an Anton.

DAS EKEL (1939)            Hans Moser, Josefine Dora and Herma Relin, Hans Deppe

 Art.No.:          1428 

Karl Straubler, expediter and wine wholesaler, is a real troublemaker.  What really boils his blood is the tram, which drives right in front of his house and squeals as it turns the curve.  He makes inquiries, wants to litigate, insults the court --- and all against the advice of his friend, Weichert.  His son Heinrich is in love with Straubler's daughter Leni, but when he asks for his hand, her father throws him out, because Leni is supposed to marry Ferdinand.  For his part, Ferdinand is in love with the daughter of the barber, Pitzinger.

Karl Sträubler, Spediteur und Weingroßhändler, ist ein echter Querulant. Was ihn zur Weißglut bringt, ist die Straßenbahn, denn genau an seinem Haus fährt sie um die Kurve und quietscht. Er macht Eingaben, will prozessieren, beleidigt das Gericht – ganz gegen den Rat seines Freundes Weichert. Dessen Sohn Heinrich liebt Sträublers Tochter Leni, doch als er um ihre Hand anhält, schmeißt ihn der Vater hinaus, denn Leni soll Ferdinand heiraten. Der wiederum liebt die Tochter des Friseurs Pitzinger.

DAS FERIENKIND (1943)      Hans Moser, Lizzi Holzschuh and Gisa Wurm

 Art.No.:          907 

 No Hitler youth.  No Nazi uniforms.  A non-political, country school with young children, who are not members of the Hitler Youth.  Hans Moser is either a counselor or a teacher or both.  His daughter and his son in law are sending their only son to this country school and camp.   Some of the teachers are eccentric .  One has a fish and a pet bird and treats them like children; another has a cactus and treats it like a human being.  The boy students get real mischievous. One trims the cactus.  The teacher gets mad when she catches him and chases him around the room until Moser comes in and stops her, causing a lot of shtick.  One other boy picks apples for one of the teachers but takes a bite of one of them before he puts it on the table.  Hans plays with one of the students with a train set.   To say it's a comedy not to be taken seriously is rather an understatement.

Aber er nimmt dem kleinen Tyrannen nichts übel. Erstens kennt er ihn und seine guten Seiten, zweitens ist er glücklich verheiratet. Allerdings: von dieser Ehe darf Voglsang nichts wissen.

DIE UNENTSCUHLDIGTE STUNDE (1937) E.W. Emo Writers: Alexander Turmayer (novel), Karl Peter Gillmann Stars: Anton Edthofer, Hans Moser and Dagny Servaes

 When the student Kathe defends her friend Thilde after an incident, they are both expelled from school.  In order to cover up the expulsion, she tells her parents that she is sick.  Then she promptly falls in love with the attending doctor, who not only cures her sudden illness, but who marries his new patient.  It doesn’t take long, however, before Kathe gets bored living the life of a doctor’s wife.  She looks for a distraction and soon secretly enrolls in a new school.

Als die Schülerin Käthe ihre Freundin Thilde nach einem Vorfall verteidigt, wird sie von der Schule verwiesen. Um den Hinauswurf ihren Eltern zu verheimlichen, stellt sie sich krank. Prompt verliebt sie sich in den behandelnden Arzt, der ihre plötzliche Krankheit nicht nur heilt, sondern seine Patientin auch gleich heiratet.  Aber schon bald langweilt Käthe das Leben einer Arztgattin. Sie sucht nach einer Beschäftigung und meldet sich heimlich in einer neuen Schule an.

DIE UNRUHIGEN MADCHEN (1938)  Géza von Bolváry Writer: Ernst Marischka Stars: Käthe von Nagy, Elfriede Datzig and Hans Moser

 Four orphaned girlfriends move in together into one apartment after graduating high school, supported by the caretaker at their school, so that they can finance their further studies.  Two of them make the acquaintance of a frivolous young baron.  One of them shoots at him while enraged, but is let go by the court.  This is a cliché film with young, trashy girls, interspersed with folk humor.  It was the last film to be produced in Austria before the Wehrmacht marched in to execute the Anschluss.

Vier elternlose Freundinnen ziehen nach dem Abitur, unterstützt vom Hausmeister ihrer Schule, gemeinsam in eine Wohnung und suchen Arbeit, um ihr Studium finanzieren zu können. Zwei machen die Bekanntschaft eines leichtfertigen jungen Barons. Eine schießt in ihrer Empörung auf ihn, wird jedoch vor Gericht freigesprochen. Klischeehafte Jungmädchen-Kolportage, aufgelockert durch volkstümliche Komik. Hans Moser ragt durch seine köstliche Charakterkomik heraus. Der letzte in Österreich vor dem Einmarsch der Wehrmacht produzierte Film.

EINMAL DER LIEBE HERRGOTT SEIN (1942)          Hans H. Zerlett, Hans Moser, Irene von Meyendorff and Lotte Lang

 Art.No.:          1727 

Karl Geschwandtner, a porter in a large hotel, has only one wish:  one day, he'd like to be the lord and master, as the saying goes:  to be the porter and 'ruler' in the hotel.  And luck helps him to temporarily fulfill his dream.  But Karl doesn't just take over running the hotel, he feels the need to stick his nose in the life of his hotel guests, too.  There are couples, who don't want to be put together or apart.  When a valuable jewel goes missing, he plays detective and only succeeds in helping the thief to rob the hotel guests at his leisure.  Pretty soon, chaos reigns at the hotel; there's massive confusion.  Even the newspaper seller, Wally, whom Karl secretly loves, is slowly starting to mistrust him.  When the director of "Hotel Europa" finally returns, he throws Karl out, who thereupon simply rents a room as a guest.  Now he's successful in unmasking the hotel thief, who once again tries to make a foray.  The other victims revert back to their proper "roles"; peace returns to the hotel.  Karl hangs up the cloak of masterdom on its nail forever and gladly returns back to being a porter, happy to once more have Wally at his side.

Karl Geschwandtner, Lohndiener in einem großen Hotel, hat nur einen Wunsch: einmal möchte er der liebe Herrgott sein, sprich: Portier und somit "Herrscher"im Hotel. Der Zufall hilft ihm dabei, seinen Traum vorübergehend zu erfüllen. Doch der Karl übernimmt nicht nur die "Führung" des Hotels, auch in das Leben der Hotelgäste mischt er sich gründlich ein. Da werden Paare, die es gar nicht wollen, auseinander und zusammen gebracht. Als kostbare Schmuckstücke verschwinden, spielt er Detektiv und verhilft damit dem Hoteldieb erst dazu, die Gäste in aller Ruhe auszurauben. Bald steht das ganze Hotel Kopf, es herrscht ein wildes Durcheinander.  Sogar die Zeitungsverkäuferin Wally, die Karl heimlich liebt, wird langsam misstrauisch. Als endlich der Direktor den Schauplatz "Hotel Europa" wieder betritt, wirft er Karl kurzerhand hinaus, worauf sich dieser einfach als Gast wieder einmietet.  Nun gelingt es ihm, den Hoteldieb, der noch einmal einen Beutezug machen will, zu enttarnen. Auch die übrigen Opfer finden zu ihren richtigen "Rollen" zurück, es kehrt wieder Ruhe ein. Karl hängt den Portiersposten für immer an den Nagel und wird als Lohndiener glücklich mit seiner Wally.

ENDSTATION (1935)    E.W. Emo, Paul Hörbiger, Hans Moser and Josefine Dora

 Art.No.:          1741 

Karl Vierthaler is a typical Viennese:  a Feschak, not adverse to cozy wine taverns and a streetcar conductor by profession.  With his father -- a grouse of a man -- he lives a carefree life ... that is until a cute little seamstress enters the scene.  He falls in love with her on the spot when she enters his tram.  After a few complications, which has to do with her self-assured demeanor, he wins over the charming lady, finds favor with his father and there's a happy ending.

Karl Vierthaler (Paul Hörbiger) ist ein typischer Wiener, ein Feschak, gemütlich, dem Heurigen nicht abgeneigt und von Beruf Straßenbahnschaffner. Mit seinem Vater (Hans Moser), einem mosernden, raunzigen und grantlerischen Typ, lebt er sorgenfrei, bis eine hübsche kleine Modistin (Maria Andergast) in sein Leben tritt. Er verliebt sich auf der Stelle, als sie in seine Tram einsteigt. Nach einigen Verwicklungen, die mit ihrem selbstbewussten Auftreten zu tun haben, gewinnt die charmante Schneiderin die Gunst des Vaters und das Happy End findet an der Endstation statt.

GELD INS HAUS (1945)          Robert A. Stemmle, Hans Moser, Annie Rosar and Hans Holt

 Art.No.:          1952 

 Leopold Habernal is a simple letter carried with a good heart.  From out of nowhere, he comes upon a load of cash:  a former lover has left him her entire estate!  Habernal wants to keep it all a secret, but at a celebration for his 25th anniversary at work, it all comes out in the open.  From a staid postman, he turns into the most popular guy overnight:  first, his landlady makes the moves on him; then Anni Schober woos him quite openly, whereby the barber Fuhringer, who is horribly in love with Anni, becomes pissed as all Hell at Habernal. 

Leopold Habernal ist ein kleiner Briefträger mit dem Herzen am rechten Fleck. Aus heiterem Himmel kommt er zu Geld: eine ehemalige Geliebte hat ihm ihr Vermögen hinterlassen.

Aus dem biederen Briefträger wird über Nacht ein begehrter Mann: zunächst macht ihm seine Hauswirtin Avancen, dann umwirbt ihn Anni Schober unverhohlen, worauf der Friseur Führinger, der unsterblich in Anni verliebt ist, auf seinen alten Freund Habernal böse wird.

Art.No.:           2212 

Ein Verehrer nach dem anderen kommt in die Wiener Vorstadt, um der reizenden Musikstudentin Hannerl seine Aufwartung zu machen. Ihr Herz gehört aber dem Motorenfabrikanten Van den Born, der sie am liebsten unter einen Glassturz stellen würde wie seine Statuette der Fanny Elßler. Als die Liebe des Industriellen Gegenstand einer werksinternen Intrige wird, versetzt Hochbaum die Viennoiserie mit brütender Melodramatik. Schon vorher gehören zum Wien dieses Films nicht nur Prater und Steffl, Hans Moser und Rudolf Carl, sondern auch hektisch belebte Großunternehmensflure.

One admirer after another arrives in Wiener Vorstadt to pay their respects to the attractive music student Hannerl.  But her heart belongs to the carmaker Van den Born, who would prefer to put her under a glass globe like his statue of Fanny Elssler.

Art.No.:           2334 

 Knox owns half of the Circus Saran and acts as a clown there.  He hides his circus life from his daughter and is very embarrassed when his daughter finds out his true profession.  Hans Moser, who plays Knox, performs poorly, because the character he plays is simply not funny. Leo Slezak, who owns the other half of the circus, as well as Pat and Patachon perform better. The only really good thing about this film is its music, composed by Robert Stolz; especially the song "Ein bisschen Sing-Sang und gute Kameradschaft" , which can be heard throughout the movie.

Family Brandt has lost its fortune in oil speculation, and they have great debts at the local bank. This one is threatened with its own crash due to lack of money.

Bank Accountant Schmidt uses his own money to welcome him properly, presenting himself as Brandt's daughter's fiance, but it turns out, that Hoffmann never was a millionaire, in fact he still owns the city of Chicago about $100 for medical treatment. Yet with his existance alone he starts a big scheme to bring back prosperity. Surprisingly it works, yet there are some problems: FIRST -  Chicago wants the money back, asking at the foreign office in Berlin for help, and SECOND - Hoffmann does not like the scheme at all, and tries to go back to his quiet and peaceful Chicago

Fortan wird Hoffmann von der Obrigkeit hofiert. Über diesen Schwindel kommt Schmidt der hübschen Käthe Brandt näher, die eine Nichte von Hoffmann ist. Als Schmidt auch noch einen Ölboom inszeniert, verlieren die Familie Brandt wie auch alle übrigen vollends den Blick für die Realität. Selbst als der Schwindel auffliegt, verlangen sie von Schmidt, dass er das Spiel weiter aufrechterhält, da Groditzkirchen mittlerweile von überall her Kredite erhält und sich so zu einer boomenden Stadt entwickelt hat.

Vienna, around 1900.  The master baker Streussler’s most ardent wish is to see his daughter Nelly as a student at the university.  With the help of his famous “streusel cake” he succeeds in luring all kinds of helpers for this endeavor into his house.  But Nelly has entirely different plans:  she is in love with the chimney sweep Heinz, the son of a neighbor, with whom Papa Streussler has been fighting for years.  So it’s no wonder then, that the grump confectioner is doing everything he can to break up the relationship.

Wien, um 1900. Der sehnlichste Wunsch des Konditormeisters Streußler ist es, seine Tochter Nelly als Studentin an der Universität zu sehen. Mit Hilfe seines berühmten Streuselkuchens gelingt es ihm zwar, alle erdenklichen Helfer für dieses Unterfangen in sein Haus zu locken – doch Nelly hat ganz andere Pläne: Sie ist in den Schornsteinfeger Heinz verliebt, bei dem es sich wiederum ausgerechnet um den Sohn jenes Nachbarn handelt, mit dem Papa Streußler seit Jahren im Streit liegt. Kein Wunder also, dass der grantige Konditor nichts unversucht lässt, um die Beziehung zu verhindern.

WIENER BLUT (1942) * with switchable English subtitles *  Willi Forst, Willy Fritsch, Maria Holst and Hans Moser

 Art.No.:          1818

The Viennese operetta films promoted a "feeling of Austria" in the times of Nazi rule, which very much contrasted the Hitler Germany dominated by Prussia.  During the Vienna Congress, the north German Count Wolkersheim is bored to tears as Prussian diplomat in the Habsburg court and smears the city's beloved walzes as "senseless garbage", which leads to a fight with his wife, Melanie.  He's taught otherwise pretty soon and falls for the charming dancer, Liesl.  The unexpected return of his wife is confused with the dancer at the court ball.

Der Wiener Operettenfilm schlechthin propagierte in Zeiten der NS-Herrrschaft das "Österreichtum" durchaus in Opposition zum preußisch geprägten Hitler-Deutschland. Während des Wiener Kongresses weilt der norddeutsche Graf Wolkersheim als Diplomat vor Ort und schmäht den beliebten Walzer als "sinnloses Gehopse", worüber er mit seiner Frau Melanie in Streit gerät. Schon bald wird er eines besseren belehrt und verfällt obendrein der charmanten Tänzerin Liesl. Seine unerwartet zurückgekehrte Gattin wird auf dem Hofball mit dieser verwechselt.
